As some of you may already know, I took a “partial hiatus” starting last November, and ending May of this year. Over the break, I wasn’t accepting new product samples, and focused on slowly (very slowly) reviewing what I already had on hand. Here’s some of what you missed while I was away.
The product: Lancôme Hypnôse Velours Multi-Wear Eyeliner Patches ($28 CAD)
I have yet to try these, but they’re very, very cool — I couldn’t not share them with you!
Lancôme Hypnose Velours Multi-Wear Eyeliner Patches
This trio of eyeliner patches (think of them as eyeliner appliqués; press-on eyeliner for those wary of their liner skills) contains 3 different styles of eyeliner patches, each of which can be re-used up to 3 times — sort of like false lashes.
Each set comes with patches for both the upper and lower lashes, and presses on for a wide-eyed liner effect.
Lancôme Rose Étincelle Blush Highlighter Illuminating Powder
The product: Lancôme Blush Highlighter Illuminating Powder in Rose Étincelle ($52 CAD)
The Lancôme rose is featured in this collection as a beautiful pink highlighter for the face and décolleté. I was very wary of the overspray on this one, and I was right to be — when I removed it, I had puffs of silver glitter on everything from my pants to the top of my head!
Beneath the glittery overspray, though, is a beautiful, soft pink frost. It blends out easily to create a delicate glow with plenty of sparkle, and holds on better to the cheek than it did in my swatch. It’s too shimmery for me–I like all sheen, no sparkle–but I think many would adore this one.
